Willis to run eight in Lazy E races


Trainer Eddie Willis will be busy on Saturday at Remington Park with six qualifiers to the Grade 2, $151,000 Lazy E Futurity and two horses in the Grade 2, $99,000 Lazy E Derby, two races restricted to the offspring of stallions standing at nearby Lazy E Ranch.

Pacing Willis's six-pack in the futurity is second-fastest qualifier Mitey Cash Obsession, winner of the third of six trials on March 20 by 2 3/4 lengths in 17.761 seconds for 350 yards. The other Willis qualifiers are SR Spanky, Ima Easy Dashin, La Corona Classic, Shake Cartel, and Hesa Special Corona.

In the derby, Willis has second-fastest qualifier Carona With Lime, a qualifier to last year's Lazy E Futurity who won her derby trial by a nose over 2003 Lazy E Futurity winner Blazen Madie. The other Willis qualifier is Best Advice.

Blazen Madie, 5 for 9, should be the derby favorite. She has finished second in three races, including the Grade 1 Remington Park Futurity.

Outdashing ready for 4-year-old debut in Eastex

Outdashing, winner of the Grade 1 Remington Park Futurity in 2002, will try to show his juvenile form when he makes his 4-year-old debut in the Grade 3, $20,000 Eastex Handicap on Saturday at Remington.

Last year, Outdashing, who earned $205,954 as a 2-year-old, won only one of five starts, but did finish in third place in the New Mexico Challenge Derby.

As a 2-year-old, he placed in the All American Juvenile and the Sunland Fall Futurity after winning the Remington Park Futurity.
